Look closely at the ash!
My major problem was the face. I decided I couldn't use a single dmc embroidery floss because then it would be the same thickness as the hat and beard. So I had to go to the local thread store and pick up a very fine silk thread and ooooooooooh! it's awful to work with by hand.
The other problem was figuring out HOW to do the stitches on the face, yikes! I'm still not too pleased with it, but I think it works and I'm NOT redoing it AGAIN.
comments have some excellent suggestions
No wonder I was challenged
Tim's face is tiny in comparison to the one's in this website.
